As the heart of the home, it’s important to get your kitchen interior design right.
When planning your kitchen renovation, one of the key things you should consider is the theme of the décor.
Your theme should suit both your personal tastes and be in-keeping with the style of your home.
Here, we have rounded up four popular kitchen themes that you could choose for your home, with the help of the expert design team at Bespoke Kitchens, Newcastle
When envisioning a traditional kitchen, most people will picture wooden units, with shaker style doors and granite worktops – It’s a timeless look that tends to complement older homes.
Embrace the era of your home with classic terracotta floor tiles and a bold Aga in racing green, using neutral wall coverings for a modern twist.
If this doesn’t appeal to your taste, you could add free-standing furniture to a contemporary kitchen design to embrace the age of your home.
Adding a grand Welsh Dresser makes a practical addition, whilst adding character and maintaining that traditional aesthetic.

A contemporary kitchen design will usually embrace a neutral colour palette, pairing warm cream tones with natural textures.
Shaker doors are given a make-over with a lick of white/ cream paint and chrome “T-bar” handles and are paired with wooden worktops for a contemporary finish.
Neutral subway tiles with contrasting grout lines makes a stylish splashback choice, especially when set-off with chrome appliances.
A breakfast bar is a ‘must have’ in a contemporary kitchen. You could choose a contracting colour, such as rich navy blue, to make a bold design statement. Or, keep things consistent for a clean finish.
Hang pendant lighting above the breakfast bar area to keep the space as bright as possible and choose leather finish bar stools to nail the modern look.
There is a fine line between minimal and contemporary design. Whilst a contemporary design seems warm and inviting, a minimal kitchen is almost industrial in appearance. A minimalist kitchen will usually be entirely monochrome, with “no-fuss” features.
Straight edged, high gloss cupboards are paired with block colour countertops and grey or black flooring to give a dynamic finish. Appliances are usually hidden behind cupboards, or built- in to maintain the minimal look without sacrificing practicality.
While accessories are scares, a minimalist kitchen will usually embrace nature, using fresh herbs and plants to add a pop of vibrant green and a hint of personality.
Creating a modern farmhouse kitchen is all in the finer details. Like a contemporary design, painted shaker doors are preferred, however this time pewter toned ‘bow’ shaped handles give that farmhouse finish.
Adding some open storage solutions, such as glass cupboards, or floating shelves, where you can display your crockery gives that cosy, kitsch look.
A farmhouse kitchen is a little more colour-friendly, you can explore different tones like olive green and steel blue to create that homely feeling, just be sure not to overwhelm the colour scheme with bold accessories.
